A 2K/two color mold is a mold in which two plastic materials are injected on the same injection molding machine and molded in two parts, but the product is only molded once. In general, this 2 shot molding process is also called double injection molding, usually, the final product is molded in only one mold, and requires a special two color injection molding machine.Two color molds are increasingly popular in the market. The 2k molding process can make the appearance of the product more beautiful, easy to change colors without spraying, but it is expensive and requires high technical processing.
2k plastic injection moulding refers to the injection molding of two different materials into the same set of molds, so as to realize the molding process of the injection molded parts formed by the two materials. Some two materials are different colors, and some are different in softness and hardness, so as to improve the aesthetics and assembly performance of the 2 shot molding.
From the characteristics and applications of multi color injection molding and double-material co-injection molding, 2k injection can be seen that there will be a trend to gradually replace the traditional injection molding process in the future. Innovative 2k injection molding not only improves the precision of the injection molding process, provides difficult process technology, but also expands the scope of the injection molding process. 2 shot injection molding and processes are sufficient to meet the needs of increasingly diverse, high-quality, and high-value-added products.
